Author(s): Sonali Phate, GN Wagh, Dr. KG Dube
Abstract: Growth promising formulations of liquid manure was assayed for presence of human pathogens, antibacterial activity against phytopathogens i.e. Pseudomonas syringe, Xanthomonas citri subsp.malvacearium & Xanthomonas campestris and growth promoting effect on wheat. The study showed that it does not facilitate the growth of human pathogens. It exhibited antibacterial activity against Xanthomonas campestris pathogen of soyabean plant. Presence of Psedomonas flurocence, a growth promoting bacteria, in liquid manure was confirmed during assay for Psedomonas aeruginosa which is a human pathogen. The pot culture experiment with wheat var. Lok 1 showed the significant positive effect of liquid manure on growth of plants.
